Mavic’s new shoe comes with a removable bootie, chang­ing the way you see com­fort and light­ness in your footwear. We don’t mind if we do.

In­spired by ski boots, Mavic’s Comete (‘comet’, in French) Ul­ti­mate road shoe twins a feather- light full- car­bon outer shell with a removable ma­te­rial bootie that houses your foot. The de­sign re­moves the need for an in­ter­nal mount­ing in­sole, re­duc­ing the Comete’s stake height to 4.5mm, while in­creas­ing stiff­ness and re­duc­ing weight to 240g a shoe.

Mavic’s Ergo Dials en­sure a sta­ble, se­cure fit, while anti-fric­tion ma­te­rial on the bootie’s un­der­side elim­i­nates any move­ment be­tween it and the outer shell. The Comete takes in­dul­gence to the ex­treme – but for some, you can’t put a price on supreme com­fort and max­i­mum power trans­fer. MAVIC COMETE UL­TI­MATE ± R16 000 DRAG­ONS. CO. ZA
